We are doing multi-step equations in math. And this equation is kind of hard for me because the variable is alone.
h-6+7h=42 What does "h" equal?

  • Math -

    Is your problem to see that
    h + 7h = 8h ?

    What if I said:
    "a hat and 7hats"
    wouldn't I have 8 hats ?

    so

    h-6 + 7h = 42
    8h -6 = 42
    8h -6 +6 = 42+6 , add 6 to both sides
    8h = 48
    divide both sides by 8
    8h/8 = 48/8
    h = 6

    Thanks!!!
